Players coming in likely to be loans due to FFP situation


Recommended Posts

So that confirms what we’ve been fearing. Ffs. Wasted our budget on absolute bobar. Personally I think Doyen have completely screwed us over, that’s how it feels anyway. Still unconvinced Carlos had a say in players brought in.

 

Tbh if our new CEO sells some/most of our dead wood on to balance the books then fair enough cos they’ve been wee wee poor.

Thought we all knew this already. We're skint. Chansiri gambled and failed. Now we settle down, bring in loanees to help us stay in the league. 2018/19 is likely to be a top 10 target season only. 19/20 season we push for promotion again, providing the owner has the funds to go again.

Summer was the time to offload a couple of players and refresh the squad. 

 

With FFP rules at play, part of the intelligent everyday running of a team should be to understand when best to sell players and what to do with that money to improve the squad. 

 

Seems Derby have got this bang on.

loans might be the best thing rather than signing players past their best on long contracts. At least with loans if they impress you can try and sign them but if they are crap send them packing at the end of the deal. We really do need to try and sell some of the players we have though, our squad seems to be quantity rather than quality.

Doesn't seem to have stopped Wolves.

 

Nor Bournemouth etc before them.

 

If it's really that bad, we need to go moneyball for recruitment then so Hecky or Dean Smith for manager.

 

Also, flog Hooper or Rhodes if we get a decent bid as we need defenders and midfield nutter.

FFP constraints are very different from being skint, even if the effects are similar in the short-term. Difference with FFP is that you’re in a different position once each year’s accounts clear - no reason to think we won’t be able to spend a bit for next season’s campaign.

 

In the meantime, I’m all for a few loans now we don’t have CC at the helm. We might even use them.

 

FFP is just shorthand for balancing the books, isn’t it? In our current precarious position, I thank the heavens that there’s some sort of ruling in place that - whatever else happens - technically makes it slightly more difficult for us to bankrupt ourselves through ever more desperate gambling.

 

Shore it up, calm it down, level the sights, go again. Best way in my view. No reason to think next couple of seasons won’t be much, much better than this one.

Makes the chairman’s no sell policy seem all the more strange. Guessing that’s about to change sharpish probably for the best as well.

One or two big name departures to come whilst left with inferior squad players to replace them.

Our 150 year anniversary just keeps getting better.

Wolves are within FFP and had a smaller net spend than us until last summer.
